Joe Biden wants to tax the rich significantly higher

D.He is the President of the United States Joe Biden According to locals, it plans to significantly increase taxes for the wealthy to invest in sectors such as education and child care. Among others, those familiar with the plans told Reuters on Thursday that the capital gains tax on citizens with annual incomes of more than $ 1 million would be doubled to 39.6 percent as part of the “American Family Plan.” The Bloomberg News Agency also reported, citing informed circles.

It will be delivered next week, he said. Wall Street responded with significant discounts to reports and cryptocurrencies also went down.
